Re: What is on your Christmas wishlist?

Is it too much to ask just to have a current classic?May Santa have pity on me and give me a Valiant Charger.Showroom condition as it was built originally.

My ghost is going to MOER another ghost

As I spend the biggest part of my life behind a steering wheel,I found that I am still alive only by luck.My near death experiences are mostly at the hands of people overtaking other people on a solid line around a curve or blind height.The most memorable involved a bus and at another time an inter-...

If your car is a 1960 Valiant as in your profile I wouldn't touch the dash at all... It's too cool ..,
The Valiant on my profile was owned by me when I was still young.I use the photo as a tribute to it.Dash is for a Ford Sapphire.

Re: GM

I have my Aveo since 2012.I bought it 2nd hand with 50k on the clock.It is not an exciting car,but value for money in terms of fuel consumption reliability,legroom,bootspace etc.What I got for what I paid was worth every cent.Serviced it regular and didn't spent on anything extra but normal wear and...
